Top Trends Gone Thrifty

1 2 3 4 5

I’m determined to wear things that are never average, so I shop thrift stores and flea markets. The one-of-a-kind pieces let you put your own stamp on a season’s trends, plus, there is no better feeling than telling someone your envy-inducing dress is “vintage, dahling” (insert fake British accent at your will!). Insistent on proving my cause, I’ve compiled some wearable, and of course fashionable, items. Come shop with me!

-Ashley Jardine

Aviator, shearling jackets were all over the runway and are now nicely nestled into your usual haunts, but there is nothing worse than falling in love with your H&M number, only to spot it more times than you can count on others too.

This lovely thick, sheepskin-lined jacket was only $40—much the same as you would pay in Topshop or Urban Outfitters—and a snip of the $3595 price tag of this Burberry Prorsum number that ignited our obsession with all things snuggly in the first place!

    I try to shop thrifty when I can but it’s definitely hard to find great pieces. You really have to hunt…..at least where I live

    I thrift shop weekly. Usually get about 70 clothing items/pieces (pants, shirts, belts, hats, shoes, you name it) for about $100. I can spend 5 hours in one thrift store. My friends marvel at what I can find in what they just passed over. I would love to somehow turn this into a business for myself. I find some really good brands, quality stuff! I love brining it all home and putting together outfits, etc.

    I found a Louis Vuitton shoulder bag in a thrift shop! Paid $20 for it, took it to a leathersmith and had him remove the straps (which cost another $15). I wear it as a clutch and still get compliments and inquiries about where I got it! Thrift Score!
